Expand your cultural horizons without leaving home!
Since 2000, BGHS has had a partnership with Gutenberg Gymnasium (high school) in Erfurt, Germany. From October 23rd to November 6th, 2016, 2 teachers and 7-8 teens from Germany will pay us another visit. We are seeking hosts who can "adopt" a German during this time. German language background is a plus but not required. The students are advanced English learners seeking a full cultural immersion during their stay. All prospective hosts (parent and child) are invited to an informational meeting on Monday, April 25th, at 5:30 p.m. Please contact exchange coordinator Ferrel Rose with any questions.

If you have alumni news, we'd love to hear about it and share it with the rest of Purple Nation. Send all news to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line: 'Newsletter.'
Several years ago, a friend of mine spent ten days one summer in the Bahamas sailing through the Atlantic waters and visiting the islands on a 78 foot ketch, which he tells me is a big sailboat.
As my friend shared with me how much fun he had, he told me something he found fascinating. One afternoon, as my friend and his crewmates were sailing in the afternoon sun, they watched the rain coming down off in the distance as the weather steadily moved towards them. The whole crew proceeded to eventually get heavily rained on for a little while before the sun came back out and the weather cleared up. That night, like every other night, the crew slept up on deck underneath the stars shining over the Atlantic.
I share this story because we are coming up on a very busy time of year for our students. The next two weeks will see hundreds upon hundreds of Advanced Placement tests and Compass tests being administered. Teachers will be wrapping up instruction and students will be finalizing last-minute projects and papers while also busily studying for final exams in three weeks.
This weekend, we are looking at the rain clouds coming towards us knowing that the next few weeks will be busy and tough. But we also see, not too much further, where the sun is returning and we'll have some time to relax. Let's all work together these next 15 school days to encourage and support our students as much as possible as we wind down this school year.
